Them: "a DIT... what is that?" Me: "well, mainly it is about color correction, but I often deal with data management, sound syncing, and Transcoding of dailies as well." Them: "oh! So you are an editor!" (Hang my head) Me: "sure, I'm an editor."

Los Angeles Film Industry; Bob, Steve, Mary, Sally, etc...

Los Angeles film business; Bill, Bob, Mary, Bridgett, Joe.... Louisiana film business; Gator, Snake, Cajun, Frog, Chicken Hawk. Yes, those are names... Of humans! But don't confuse the names with the work... These southern crews as good as any Hollywood crew budget for budget. Anyone who tells you otherwise is just "hatein"!

ARRI Group: Master Anamorphic Lenses

The new Mac Pro is one more example of Apple putting design and innovation before the true needs of the needs of the professional user. I think as an industry, we need to start working towards getting away from ProRes as a standard. We need to find a platform agnostic format. I never thought I would be so interested in going back to PC... but I'm there.

Hey all. So I have some news to put out to "the world". The MIL was a good idea. So much so that the "Big guys" (Deluxe, Technicolor, etc) have built their own versions. At the same time, those Big companies are "undercutting" me by including my services within a large budget for overall services.
I am putting this out to you in an effort to ask that those of you in the Production Industry have this in the back of your mind and take it into account when you are working in your jobs. Just keep an eye out for opportunities for me to "stick it to the man". ;)
